Events: NEC Wedding Show

Caitlin Osborne

Last week we attended the Wedding Show at Birmingham's NEC exhibition centre. Over the past few months we had received many requests for bespoke candles for weddings, birthdays and baby showers. We thought this would be a great chance to break into the wedding market so we took our soy wax candle wares down South. 

The aim of the game was to find out more about the market and meet new customers whilst promoting Design Caledonia and the candles. Over the weekend we were offering personalised luxury candles made from the finest fragrance and soy wax. All candles are hand-poured in Fife and made bespoke for our customers special day. We launched the complete personalised candle range in which the customer can choose their your own jar colour and size, fragrance and label with names and dates. These can be used as beautiful table decorations or as a perfect keepsake wedding favour for guests.

We met some fantastic exhibitors who we are looking to partner with in the future from card makers, prosecco van hire, photographers and cheese wedding cakes! The show truly did teach us a lot about the wedding sector and our customer segment.
